Commodity Intraday Tips

PRECIOUS METALS


Gold prices gained in Asia on Thursday as the Federal Reserve held steady on interest rates as expected, though the outlook for a possible hike this year by the FOMC remained subject to debate. Gold for December delivery on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange rose 0.48% to $1,337.75 a troy ounce.

The precious metal is sensitive to moves in U.S. rates, which lift the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding assets such as bullion, while boosting the dollar in which it is priced. A gradual path to higher rates is seen as less of a threat to gold prices than a swift series of increases.
